Chemical Peels Fredericksburg

Published on December 12, 2018

Chemical Peels are used primarily on the face as a way to remove surface issues in the skin of the face and create a more vibrant, youthful appearance. There are several different types and strengths of chemical peels and it is important to understand what the severity of each kind of chemical peel is and what risks, precautions and benefits go with them. In general, chemical peels can reduce acne or acne scarring, fine lines, freckles, age spots and liver spots, sun damage, and rough or irregular skin pigmentation patches.

Chemical Peels are administered in the form of a chemical solution consisting of phenol, aphahydroxy acids and trichloroacetic acid that is applied to the skin. There are three different levels of chemical peels (light, medium, and deep) and each reflects the strengths of the chemical peel, how deep it peels, and how long the recovery period is.
